New Road Contemplated
At Alice Arm
It is very probable that the town
of Alioe Arm will be further improved this year by another thoroughfare. The proposed road will
be constructed ou the hillside on
the west of the town. It will commence near the Alice Arm Hotel
aud traverse the entire hill joining
up with the road of J. Strombeek,
which connects with the flats near
Falls creek.
In order to acquaint themselves
with the feasibility of constructing
a road the directors of the Alice
Arm Mining and Development Co.
who reside in Anyox spent the
week-end in Alice Arm.
They made an exhaustive exam-
nation, accompanied by S. Dumas
looal agent of the company. The
directors of the oompany making
the trip were J. Swanson, H. B.
Porteous, N. Bloom. J. Richie and
D. Evan's. Mrs. Bloom and Mrs.
M. Eld also accompanied the
party.
The hillside on the west of the
town contains many choice building
lots, but inaccessibility has been a
deterent faotor to building operations. As soon as a road has been
constructed the hillside will undoubtedly be dotted with picturesque residences. The contemplated road would be of great benefit to the town, for it would extend the residental district whioh
is already getting congested, and
give those desiring an opportunity
of residing at an elevated position
above the flats.
Anyox Fire Destroys Houses
A fire broke out yesterday morn
ing at 2 a.m. on the west side of
the smelter. It destroyed all the
houses in the restricted district
west of Lew Lull's store, and
latest reports yesterday stated that
it had entered the timber and that
the water pipe lines of the hydroelectric plant and domesticsupplies
were in danger. The ground is
dry as tinder and great vigilence
will be necessary to keep it from
spreading.

Girls' Athletic Club Are
Charming Hostesses
Ou Friday June 3rd, the girls'
olassof the Beach Athletio Club
were hostesses to their friends at a
delightful party in the Gymnasium. The Hall was beautifully
decorated and the evening was
spent in games and dancing.
The music for the dancing was
very kindly provided by Messrs. F.
Dresser, Dune Campbell, Steve
Jones aud T. Evans. The musio
put forth by the above left nothing
to be desired, the members being
well executed and the time being
perfect.
ThS table refreshments were in
the hands of Mesdames Eve, Dresser and Munroe who deserve every
praise for the time they so unselfishly gave towards the success of the
evening.
During the course of the evening
Miss Kathleen Eve made a pretty
little speech and presented the
gymnasium instructors, Messrs.
Harmon and Lace with tokens of
appreciation of the class. To which
Mr Harmon and Mr. Lace made
suitable response.
By request of the parents present
Mr. Harmon put the girls' class
through their drill which he has
so ably taught them during the
past winter. The thunder of
applause which burst forth after
the demonstration showed how well
the girls have heeded their instructor.
A very sumptuous spread was
served in the dining room at 10
p.m. aud was done full justice to
by those present. Immediately
after supper a prize of a Club
Sweater was presented to Miss
Margaret Marriot, who was adjudged the best in the class for the
month. John Gillis was also
awarded a sweater for his unselfish
service at the piano, during the
class work for the last few months.
There was quite a number of
grown-ups present including the
teachers, among whom Messrs.
Mitohell, Hutchinson and Kirk were
conspicuous in the whole-hearted
manner in whioh they entered into
the games with the youngsters.
Plans Made for Diamond
Jubilee Celebration
Anyox and Alice Arm will not be
behind the rest of Canada in celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of
Confederation on July 1st. Elaborate programmes are being arranged
in each town.
The programme of the day's celebration at Alice Arm is well advanced, thanks to the untiling efforts
of Wm. M. Cummings, who has
thrown himself whole-heartedly into
the work of arranging a programme
suitable for the occasion.
According to present plans the
day's celebration will commence in
the morning with a parade of school
children, to the school, headed by
bagpipes and drums. Flags, maple
leafs and trumpets will be presented
to the children, and a flag raising
ceremony will be carried out, at
which "O'Canada" will be sung.
Sports for the children will be held.
Sports for the adults will be provided in the afternoon, which will
include horse racing, and other
events, with a baseball game. In
the evening a dance will be held in
the spacious new store building of
T. W. Falconer. Citizens are requested to display as many flags as
possible on this auspicious occasion.
We hope to publish a full report
of the Anyox programme next week. ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   June   11   1927
Mining Industry Last Year
Made Tremendous Strides
The 1926 value of mineral production British Columbia established a new record in the history of
mining operations in this province.
Minerals to an aggregate value of
$67,188,842 were produced compared with $61,492,242 in 1925, an
increase of $5,696,600, or 9.2 per
cent. These figures are set forth in
the annual Report of the Provincial
Department of Mines issued under
authority of Honourable Willian
Sloan, Provincial Secretary and Minister of Mines.
Since mining commenced in
British Columbia in 1852 the total
value of Mineral production has been
$988,108,470 and  of this  amount
exact, $471,839,000, has been pro.
duced since the year 1916.
Honourable .Mr. Sloan's report
shows that British Columbia is now
the leading silver, producing province of Canada, having made a
larger output in 1926 than Ontario
which for many years has held the
lead. British Columbia, too, also
continues to be the largest producer in Canada of lead, copper and
zinc. The increase in the value of
production in 1926 was made notwithstanding lowered average metal
prices as compared with 1925, indicating a very satisfactory condition
in the industry, with production
steadily increasing regardless of
fluctuations in the metal markets.

The tonnage of ore mined and treated in the province in 1926 also
shows considerable increase: 4.775,073 tons of ore produced compared
with 3,849,269 tons in 1925.
Metal mining led in the value of production at a figure of $51,863,-
534, followed by coal mining with an output valued at $11,650,180, and
then came structural and miscellaneous totalling together $3,675,128.

The sudstantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited iu the following
figurci which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94 547,241; forfive years, 1896 1900, $57,607,967; for fiva years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-

Production Last Ten Years, $404,649,375
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Provinoe has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing suoh properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to suoh reports. They are available without oharge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports oovering each -of the six mineral Survey
Distriots are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vanoouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.

The above amount of $9,747,270 shown as distributed in 1926 by no
means represents the total net profits earned during that year. In nearly
all cases substantial sums are set aside from profits to the credit of surplus and reserve accounts; profits accruing to private companies and
individual mining enterprises as a rule are not given publicity as dividends
as in the case with the large companies, so that no record of these
profits, which in the aggregate are considerable, is available. Several
companies made substantial profits in 1926 but did not declare any
dividends.
Mining Engineers Will
Spend Summer In
District
A force of field engineers of the
National Lead Company of New
York will invade Northern British
Columbia at the end of' May to
report on suitable lead and other
deposits to be worked by the Company.
The decision to investigate the
B. C. field follows the announcement of Edward J. Cornish of New
York, president, that the oompany
had decided to consider important
investments in other countries. The
